One of our favourite independent labels Alcopop! have announced that Manchester band, Doctrines are the latest to sign to their extensive roster. Doctrines will join the likes of Johnny Foreigner and Stagecoach, and to celebrate you can download a free track from the band below.

If you like what you hear you’ll be pleased to know that you won't have to wait long for more material, the outfit will release their new EP EZ in late June. Jamie from the band had this to say about it:

"At the time of writing, we were on a mad sci-fi kick, learned about the singularity and got really scared about it all. So the intention was to attempt to write a futuristic tale inspired by that mad old guy Raymond Kurzweil, transhumanism and postgenderism... It’s NOT pretentious at all. In the end it turns out to be a story about the importance of family, friends and love. proper hippies."
